. chip saltzmann ran mike huckabee's campaign, and willie brown, of course, the -- chip, you're the republican. i think it comes down to juice, that sense of life, of protoplasm, of excitement, of -- it has many different meanings, but charisma, excitement. do these two guys represent the exciting candidates in your party? >> well, they do today. we always talk about does a candidate have the it factor. they certainly both have it right now. chris, as you well know, the path to the white house is long and windy. there's a lot of next presidents to the underbodies on the road. it's a long time between now and then. >> let's not be sheepish. do you sense right now they have the juice? >> absolutely. they both have great national names, they have organizations. they're going different paths. senator rubio is more the establishment route, and senator paul seems to be like he's going to take the antiestablishment creds all the way to the bank and will double down any chance he gets. >> youth, late 30s, early 40s, is that a big thing in the party? are you unlikely to bring in an ol

but-- >> michael: we've been debating it now for ten years. it reminds me of brown versus board of education and the deliberate speed. now is the time for speed on this issue. >> absolutely. >> michael: do you think there is a parallel between those two? >> i absolutely do. i was so astounded at the notion that there needs to be more time. it's been more than ten years. i'm very glad to see some republicans including senator rand paul are talking about a path to citizenship. >> michael: that is important but senator paul did not use the word "citizenship" in his speech. nor did he use the term "pathway to citizenship" because of the polarizing term. what do you think about semantics here. >> well, here's the thing, i guess they think that latinos hispanic, are not as sophisticated. it's like 30 years ago if you wanted to appeal to the latino vote you went to fiesta, you ate a taco you said some spanish words as if that was enough. i guess they think that's the same thing. it's not about the words. it's about what policies are you going to promote and actually enact. we're much m
